Forget the cookies. You can use Halloween cookie cutters for so much more. They’re an easy way to turn a ho-hum PB&J into a fun lunch surprise. (Well, we make PB&A sandwiches around our house–my youngest prefers agave over jam.)
Other ways to use cookie cutters:
•Make Halloween tortilla chips–baked or fried
•Pack day-old rice into the cookie cutter and then serve it on each person’s plate
•Place one on each person’s dessert plate and then sprinkle with cocoa powder to leave an outline of the Halloween shape
•Press into hot-off-the pan grilled cheese sandwich
•Cook pancakes then press in the Halloween shape
Reinvent leftover rice with this easy trick–shape it!
Here’s how it works:
- When you’re reheating the rice make sure to add a little bit of water so that it’ll be moist and a touch sticky.
- Coat the inside of your cookie cutter with baking spray. Now, you’ll need a big, deep, basic shape like hearts, squares, circles–an intricate palm tree wouldn’t work well with this.
- Place the cookie cutter onto a flat, movable surface; I use a cutting board. Fill the cookie cutter with the heated rice, making sure to press down as you go. Smooth the extra rice off of the top of the cookie cutter with a kitchen knife or spatula.
- You should be able to slide the rice-filled cookie cutter onto each person’s plate and then wiggle the cookie cutter free. It might take a little practice to get the hang of the making the shaped rice.
